Director Statement

Inspired by true events, Coyote introduces the viewer to the world of human trafficking through the life of a young woman, Esperanza, who has escaped from her captors. In her struggle to reach the US boarder, Esperanza is confronted with a choice that could change her life forever.

The filmmaking proved to be the most ambitious and expensive I have ever undertaken. With such gifted actors and talented crew, I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
